High-tech horror

My new Kindle is going to deepen my horror literacy. Since so many late 19th/early 20th century horror is available for $2.00 or less, I've been loading up the Kindle with these beauties:

The Great God Pan by Arthur Machen
Robert E. Howard Omnibus (some horror, but I'm overall just a fan of this wonderful writer)
Collected stories of HP Lovecraft (because I'm overdue to read them)
The Ultimate Horror Collection Vol. 1 (Ambrose Bierce and Bram Stoker ahoy!)

This is enough stuff that I intend to only bring my Kindle with me to Tennessee as reading material. My backpack is going to be much more comfortable to carry!

BTW, has anyone here ever been to Knoxville?

I flew into or out of Knoxville once, I don't remember -- when I was down visiting my folks an hour or so north just before or just after a trip to Spain. But my folks know the city well, anything in particular you want to know about? One of my cousins of my generation spent a good 10 years there getting his PhD. I'm sure I could come up with recommendations of good BBQ joints and Missionary Baptist churches! Even Missionary Baptist churches with good music! ;)

I was at a debate tournament there when I was seven.

I'm sad you've never read HP Lovecraft, he's my fave.

Well, I'll have the joy of experiencing Lovecraft for the first time.

As much as I love my huge and disorderly library, I find the Kindle increasingly attractive as the price drops. I'd like to hear more from you about it after you've owned it for a while.

IMHO: Air travel is the best reason to own a Kindle.
